Today I’m still working through Abby Hook’s Wire Jewelry Masterclass.

Here is one of her Mermaid’s Purse earrings done and the frame for the second one started.

I love that the fine gauge wire was reclaimed from discarded electronics by my son. All I have to do is run it through a candle flame to burn off the coating, then remove the firescale with a bit of sandpaper.

Wondering why I’m posting photos of my desk? Well it’s What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, the day we all go visiting the creative spaces of creative people all over the world. The blog link party starts at Julia’s.

  1. That is just so pretty and so kewl that you reclaimed the copper what a savings that is 🙂 Lovely wire work look forward to seeing it all finished hugs Nikki no desk # yet HAPPY WOYWW 300 !!!

    1. Hi Nikki, I like the idea of reclaiming rather than wasting, but I’ve done the math and when you figure in the time involved it really doesn’t save money. But it’s still satisfying to have kept it from a landfill. 🙂

  2. Love the earrings! There’s something about copper that really appeals to me. It’s the warm colour, I guess. Looks great against the turquoise. (my favourite colour!) Thanks for your visit earlier. Happy WOYWW.

  3. I have a genuine love of copper, so this made me smile, even though I don’t wear jewelry. You make lovely, lovely pieces, and I love that you recycled the wire, economical or not.

    Happy 300th WOYWW from #3.
